No one likes flying during the holidays; the lines, the hiked up prices, the exhausting time dealing with airport personel. It's all just one big nightmare, or at least it is usually. But this year, a low-cost airline decided that their passengers deserve a little Christmas loving. With the help of about 150 volunteers, Canadian airline WestJet took over 4 months to plan one of the most elaborate and heart warming 'Christmas Miracles' ever. They subsequently uploaded a video of their stunt on YouTube.
Here's what happened:
WestJet targeted passengers flying from Toronto and Hamilton to Calgary. When they arrived at the airport, they were invited to share their Christmas wish with a real-live Santa Claus before boarding their planes.
WestJet then sent out its little helpers to pick up the assortment of gift that the passengers wished for.
When they arrived at the baggage carousel, passengers were pleasantly surprised to find individual gifts containing their custom "Christmas miracle."
Passengers were overwhelmed with their gifts, some showing shock and awe and others not being able to hold in their tears. Of course, I'm sure the guy who wished for the 50 inch flat screen was happier than the guy who wished for socks.
Here's the video.
Additionally, WestJet posted this on their official YouTube channel.
Thanks to a team of merry WestJetters and the power of technology, we've learned that miracles really do happen. See how we did it, and learn how you could win airfare for two by sharing this video on Twitter: http://fly.ws/MakingXmasMiracle
